    On the wall at last

    Big 14 from a couple of years back, been safely boxed up from taxidermist for last 12 months waiting for his chance to get to Taupo and go up on the walk. In rating the beast was a blast, Iíd forgotten just how big he was. Now safely on the wall, pride of place. Taxidermist has done an amazing job.

    Thanks Trout, yep a real cracker. Never come across a bigger stag before, and doubt I will in the future either. Once in a life time experience.
    Unofficially it’s measuring around 380DS, not an official measurer but some one who knows what they’re doing.
    Probably should get an official measurement, next Sika Show perhaps.

    Dennis Collins in Invercargill. Stag came out area close to border of Southland and Otago, so taxidermy in Southland made sense. The workmanship is top notch.

    Very impressive.
    Would you be able to post the score sheet up.
    It looks very even and would be interesting to see just how even on paper.

    Yes, it’s very even - the only difference is the inner top royals, the one on left is longer & slopes inwards more than the right. Will see if I can find it. Really need to get it officially measured.

    What a great head that is. Perfect heavy tynes with good length carrying into the tops is pretty unusual. A real classic style with great eye appeal.
    Re score. I am sure that you can score it yourself with an assistant. The SCI and Douglas sheets can be downloaded and are pretty simple to follow
